General Manager of Public Utilities Calendar Items; 

Mr. Crowley requested Dr. John H. Chris tensen, Assistant General 
Manager-Finance, to report on the status of Municipal Railway claims 
fund, the outcome of the trolley coach bid opening last Friday, and 
the potential effect of escalating prices on the Muni rectifier 
substation equipment bid. 

Dr. Chris tensen said the status of Uuni claims as of the end of the 
third quarter this fiscal year indicates a shortfall of $225,000 to 
$250,000. He explained that $2,272,000 of the $2.8 million available 
has been expended, leaving a $527,000 balance. Average monthly total 
payments have been running $252,000. Therefore, in 3 months the 
shortfall could be $230,000. 

****** 



Reporting on the status of the Muni fiscal affairs, Dr. Christensen 
forecast a positive balance of $450,000 at year end due primarily to 
unexpended platform wages during the 9-day strike and the increase in 
ridership. 



74-59 



Although there was a revenue loss of $473,000 during the strike 
period, the reduction of expenses during that same period was in 
excess of $800,000. 



****** 



Two bids were received Friday, April 5, for furnishing 208 trolley 
coaches with option for 135 additional. 

1. Flyer Industries—low bid $71,990 for rebuilt motors; 

$73,950 for new motors, plus $4,000 
additional for the 135 under 6-month 
option. 

2. Flexible Company was $3,600 higher on the new coach bid. 

The Urban Mass Transportation Administration approved grant was 
based on $40,000 per unit. The amendment which the Commission 
recently approved and submitted increased the estimate to $55,000. 

Discussions were held with the president of Flyer, who has agreed 
from a negotiation standpoint, to meet the bid price of the 208 
on the other 135, so City could save $545,000 on the total procurement 
by exercising the option immediately. 

UMTA has indicated approval if funds are available, and discussions 
are being held with UMTA officials responsible for the allocation. 

Bids were also received for the rectifier substations in the Muni's 
Power Improvement Program. Budgeted equipment was $3.5 million? 
low bid came in at $6 million. The price ranged from $6 million to 
$9 million. This is $2.5 million more than budgeted. The same 
relative increase shows in the trolley coaches. 

Notice has been received that Boeing Vertol is withdrawing the offer 
for 8 additional subway-surface vehicles. The City still has the 
right to exercise the option on the 12 vehicles up to 120 days after 
delivery of the prototypes. The 12 optional cars were contained in 
the original contract covering 80 cars, whereas the additional 8 
was a "gentlemen's agreement". Efforts are being made to have the 
company reconsider or enter into reasonable modifications. 

Commissioner Byrne pointed out that material prices the last six 
months had gone up 30 to 40% and if the 'age Governing Board 
legislation expires, another 10% rise can be expected. 

Dr. Christensen stated that for the Muni Power Improvement Program 
equipment it will be necessary to use the program's entire 
contingency fund just for the rectifier substations. 

The Commission then discussed the effect of these rises on the 
contingency funds of the various Muni modernization programs. 

Dr. Christensen said he believes it will be necessary to reestablish 
contingencies and come back to the Commission and UMTA for 
supplemental appropriations and amendment to the Federal grants. 
He said the undesirable economic situation is not peculiar to San 
Francisco — it is happening all over the country. 

****** 



74-60 



Commissioner Flynn requested a report on the number of filed 
Municipal Railway accident claims awaiting settlement, prayer amount, 
etc. He also requested a report on the number of litigated cases 
and the size of settlement compared with cities of comparable size 
in the United States; also, the number of claims settled out of 
court for comparative periods. 

Mr. Crowley, and Demo Adams, Director, Bureau of Personnel and 
Safety, discussed measures being taken to improve Muni operators 
performance to reduce the accident rate. 

****** 



Mr. Crowley introduced George M. Duarte, newly-appointed Municipal 
Railway Deputy General Manager, Engineering and Planning. 



Roll Call 

At Commissioner Berman's request, Mr. Moore, Acting Municipal Railway 
General Manager, reported on arrangements for the $11 Muni Fast-Pass,

Special Order of Business 2:30 p.m. 



NORTHWEST SAN FRANCISCO RAPID TRANSIT EXTENSION STUDY 

Presentation of five concepts of transit alternatives for the 
Geary Corridor 

by Daniel, Mann, Johnson & Mendenhall (DMJM) f 
Consultants 

Utilities General Manager John D. Crowley, Chairman of the Board of 
Control for the Northwest San Francisco Rapid Transit Extension 
Project (NWX) , introduced William F. Hein of BART, NvJX Project 
Director, who explained the study and its purpose. 

Started one and a half years ago and funded mostly by Federal money, 
NvJX is a coordinated effort by BART, Metropolitan Transportation 
Commission and City and County of San Francisco to study alternative 
transit concepts applicable to the Northwest corridor of San 
Francisco. The Board of Control of the project is composed primarily 
of representatives of BART, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, 
and Metropolitan Transportation Commission. 

A similar study — the Golden Gate Corridor Project—concerns movement 
of commuters from North Bay counties to and through San Francisco. 
The Northwest study is concerned primarily with movement of residents 
within the Northwest Corridor and their interconnection with the 
regular system and BART. 

Coordination between NUX and the Golden Gate Corridor study has 
raised several issues ; 

1) Can the City and region afford and expect to receive significant 
amounts of Federal funds for two separate agencies? 

2) Are there ways the two can be combined to reduce the costs? 

If so, how can costs be shared? What benefits would be received 
by the corridor residents? 

3) Will requiring North Bay commuters to transfer to a Muni system 
in the Geary Corridor force people back into their cars, or will 
it actually improve transit? Jhat would impact be on residents 
of Geary Corridor? 

4) Are major new facilities required? 



74-74 



Mr. riein introduced Charles T. Blair, Vice President of DMJM, who 
explained the background of the study — the objectives of the project 
and the planning processes used in the development of the concepts. 

Original policy issues were identified and criteria established by 
which the various alternatives could be investigated. Over a period 
of several months the study team of consultants worked very closely 
with residents and other citizen representatives of the area to 
develop ideas whicii <*ould be incorporated in the concepts. The study 
team also worked with the technical representatives of related City 
and regional public agencies. 

Over 40 alternatives -rere explored and developed of which 5 were 
finally selected for subaission. 

Richard 7. Smith of DMJM, project planning director, gave a brief 
description of tne social and physical characteristics of the Geary 
corridor, and then reviewed the transit alternatives proposed. These 
ranged from an improved bus system to a streetcar/subway combination, 
to a full subway system. 

CONCEPT 1; THE EXISTING HUNT SYSTEM 

serving the Geary Corridor is used by the study as the basis 
for comparison against which plans for transit improvements 
are measured. Should there be no need for changes in the 
transit system, the study could recommend that the present 
system remain as it is. 

CONCEPT 2 ; IMPROVED BUS SYSTEM 

Buses would receive preferential treatment on Geary, major 
east-west streets—California, Sutter, Turk, Hayes, Balboa- — 
and major crosstown streets--Divisadero, Fillmore and Polk. 
Transit preference means that tne flow of transit vehicles is 
improved by some combination of limiting on-street auto 
parking, restricting auto turns, synchronizing traffic signals 
or limiting commercial vehicle access. 

CONCEPT 3; SUB. JAY/SURFACE CAR FOR GEARY 

In addition to the transit preferential bus system, a limited- 
stop streetcar would be introduced on Geary, which would 
become a subway from Cathedral Hill to Downtown. This would 
connect with the Muni Market Street subway at Market and 
Montgomery, and the Transbay Terminal. 

CONCEPT 4; RICHMOND SURFACE LINES/SUBWAY 

Three street level lines begin in the Outer Richmond. The 
Geary surface car would go underground at 17th Avenue, becoming 
a subway continuing Downtown. Transit preference streetcars on 
California and Balboa would comprise two "wings" to the system, 
becoming subways at .iasonic and merging with the Geary line 
feeder service east of Masonic. A new Downtown connection at 
the Southern Pacific Station is added. 

CONCEPT 5; SUBWAY FROM 47th or 17th AVENUE 

In this transit concept the subway begins at 47th Avenue or, as 
in Concept 4, begins as a streetcar and becomes a subway at 17th 
Avenue. Essential to the subway proposal is a system of feeder 
bus routes which bring people to and from the subway stations 
and provide local service. 



74-75 



/allace Dela Barre of DMJM gave cost estimates ar.d operating and 
capital expenditures estimated for each concept. 

At the conclusion of the presentation, Mr. Blair announced that a 
public meeting to discuss the five possible transit plans will be 
held on Thursday, May 23, at 7; 30 p.m. at the Fireman's Fund Auditor- 
ium, 3333 California Street. 

Discussion then followed s 

Commissioner Flynn questioned Mr. Dela iiarre as to the method of 
arriving at the estimated costs; whether operating costs acceleration 
was included in those concepts with 8 to 10 year development period. 

Mr. Dela Barre said that acceleration was taken into account 
wherever possible. The costs, however, are quoted in raw 1974 
dollars. The difference between the concepts stems from the 
different mixture of vehicles and relative productivity of that 
vehicle; i.e., in concept 5, 50 per cent more people are being 
carried than in concept 1. Also, in terms of cost per passenger, 
or seat mile, concepts 4 or 5 would be substantially less costly 
than 1 , 2 , or 3 . 

Commissioner Berman questioned Mr. Smith about the operation of 
Concept 4 and the linking up of the three-pronged system. 

Commissioner Flynn noted the high percentage of elderly residents 
in the Geary Corridor — 15 per cent over 65 years of age--and the 
effect this would have upon the operation. 

Mr. Crowley stated that he supports a low-cost Muni improvement 
plan which would not involve disrupting and tearing up the City 
streets at this time. T, Jith BART yet to come through the Bay tube, 
Muni-Metro still to go underground, and Golden Gate Transit stymied 
for lack of funds, Mr. Crowley said he favors concentrating on 
Concept 2 — embellishing the present bus system. 

He pointed out that with Marin County's no-growth policy, and the 
Richmond District bordering on a no-growth policy, the 1990 daily 
passenger projections were questionable. Would there be sufficient 
patronage to demand a financial expenditure by San Francisco of 
$300 or $400 million in tax dollars, without any participation by 
neighboring counties? 

Mr. Crowley said it appeared advisable at this time to move slowly 
and yet positively, to develop Concept 2 without too much cost, and 
then look "down the pike," into the future with regard to heavier 
expenditures . 

Inasmuch as the presentation was for information purposes only, 
no action by the Commission was required.

Commissioner Byrne was excused from the meeting at 3:30 p.m. 



****** 



74-76 



Resolution i>fo. 74-0162--adding weekend service to MC Line 2 8 
Nineteenth Avenue extension to the Marina District, for a 90-day 
trial period. 

Oral L. Moore, Municipal Railway Acting General Manager, said that 
since initiation of the trial extension of this route to the Marina 
on weekdays, numerous requests have been received from the natrons 
to extend this service to weekend and holiday operation. 

This action by the Commission authorizes the weekend trial service 
and also approves adding more buses to the line to meet the extended 
schedule and to accommodate the steadily increasing patronage. 

****** 



Resolution No. 74-0165--setting Tuesday, May 28, 1974, as the date 
for public hearing to consider request for reduced fare on the 
Municipal Railway for delegates to the International Lions Club 
Convention, July 3-7, 1974. Expected attendance; 40,000 

Mr. Crowley stated that as this request for special fare was 
received from two members of the Board of Supervisors -- Supervisors 
Quentin Kopp and Peter Tamaras , it is recommended that a public 
hearing be held to determine the people's wish. If after the 
hearing, a fare revision is approved, it is then forwarded to the 
Board of Supervisors who will also hear the matter publicly. A two- 
thirds vote of the Joard is necessary to reduce any fare.

General Manager of Public Utilities Calendar Items; 

Mr. Crowley introduced Lawrence B. Martin, newly-elected president 
of Transport .Jorkers Union, Local 2 50A. 



Roll Call 



Commissioner Diviny requested a report on the Municipal Railway $11.00 
monthly "Fast Pass", which commenced May 1, 1974. 

Mr. Moore said that the results are not yet complete for May sales, 
but so far over 12,000 passes have been sold. The program has been 
very well received, and system-wide it appears there has been some 
increase in traffic. 



74-77 



Commissioner Flynn complimented Public Service Director James H. 
Leonard on the latest batch of Muni service schedules. Mr. Leonard 
stated that 38 lines have been covered to date.

Call to Order: 9:00 a.m. 

Present: Commissioners H. Welton Flynn, Joseph P. Byrne, 

Joseph J. Diviny , Henry E. Berman , Dennis V. 
Carey 

Purpose of Meeting: PUBLIC HEARING to consider revision of the 

schedule of rates to be charged by the San 
Francisco Water Department. 

Commission President Flynn opened the meeting. 

Secretary John C. Farrell stated that pursuant to City Charter provi- 
sions, notice of the public hearing was published in the official 
newspaper of the City for five days (October 14, through 18, 1974), 
the last publication date being not less than ten days before the 
meeting date. 

Arthur H. Frye, Jr. , Water Department General Manager and Chief 
Engineer, reviewed events subsequent to Public Utilities Commission 
Resolution Ho. 74-0273, adopted August 13, 1974, approving a 14.5 
percent increase in water rates for San Francisco users, and 2 0.5 
percent increase for suburban consumers ,' and presented his recommenda- 
tion in the following statement: 

"On August 26, 1974 the Board of Supervisors approved an 
increase in water rates of 20-1/2 percent for all suburban con- 
sumers, and 14-1/2 percent for consumers within the City. 
Fifteen of the suburban customers of the Water Department filed 
suit on September 17, 1974 in the U. S. District Court, Northern 
District, of California, seeking Declaratory Relief, Injunction, 
Restraining Order, and Petition for Writ of Mandate. Judge 
Lloyd H. Burke issued a Temporary Restraining Order on September 
18, 1974 to stop these increases in water rates. A subsequent 
hearing was held on September 30, 1974, at which the Judge issued 
an order granting a Preliminary Injunction against imposing these 
rates. 

"However, the Judge did not enjoin the City from increasing 
water rates, which is stated in his order as follows: "The Court 
is not enjoining or restraining defendant from a reasonable, non- 
discriminatory and uniform increase in its water rates based upon 
the costs of the acquisition, operating and capital improvement 
programs of the San Francisco Water Department, and the revenues 
of the Water Department shall not be transferred from the Water 
Fund to the defendant's General Fund and will be used solely for 
the water system of the San Francisco Water Department." It was 
apparent from the discussion at the hearing that the 17.4 percent 
increase originally approved by this Commission on June 25, 1974, 
and as now proposed, is acceptable and complies with this order. 

"Brown and Caldwell, consulting Engineers, made a detailed 
study of the past capital and operating costs of the Hetch Hetchy 
Department to determine the true cost of water supplied to the 
Water Department. A determination was also made as to whether or 
not the suburban customers are currently, and have in the past, 
paid their full share of the cost of all facilities used to serve 
them. 



74-194 



:, The study was generally divided into two parts. Part one 
was a study of the past capital costs and financial results of 
the operation of Hetch Hetchy and a projection into the near 
future of the costs assignable exclusively to Water production 
and exclusively to Power production, and the costs assignable 
jointly to the two functions. Part two was to estimate the total 
annual cash flow requirements of the Water Department, and to 
allocate the near future revenue requirements between the City 
and suburban customers. Its objective was to determine the rate 
increase necessary to meet annual revenue requirements through 
fiscal year 1976-77. 

"The results of the study showed that an overall 17.4 percent 
increase is required to meet these cash flow requirements. The 
study also indicated that $44,299,000 of past capital costs, 
including interest on debt paid by consumers in the City, should 
have been recovered in revenues from the suburban wholesale users. 
The 17.4 percent increase to suburban customers provides for the 
re-payment at the rate of $1,600,000 per year, which reduces the 
revenue requirements from the City, and thereby the cost to City 
customers by a like amount. 

"The San Francisco Water Department urgently needs this 
increase if it is to continue its operation on a sound financial 
basis in view of continuing inflation and the decreasing growth 
in water sales. 

"The effect of inflation is clearly demonstrated by the 
Construction Cost and Cost of Living Indices. Since the last rate 
increase in June, 1970 the Construction Cost Index has increased 
from 6 00 to 8 81.8, and the Cost of Living Index for this area has 
increased from 249.5 to 295.2. 

"In 19 30 when the people of San Francisco ourchased the 
privately owned Spring Valley Water Company only 6 oercent 
(3.1 ilGD) of the total 52.3 MGD was consumption delivered to 
consumers outside San Francisco. During fiscal year 1972-73, 
consumption averaged 247.92 MGD, and 59 percent (145.41 MGD) 
was delivered to consumers outside San Francisco. 

"The increase in consumption resulted from growth over these 
past 44 years, in which San Francisco's regional water operation 
has played an essential role in the development of a substantial 
part of the Bay Area. 

"During these 44 years the Department has been able to meet 
its obligations and perform all of its functions through a 
combination of economical ooeration and th^ increasing water 
sales as mentioned above. Today, however, sales are not increasing 
as fast as costs are rising, and we are forced to request an 
increase in rates. I should like to emphasize that our rates and 
charges today are just about what they were '/hen the City bought 
out Spring Valley in 19 30. In view of the spiraling costs due to 
inflation during the past decade the proposed increase of 17.4 
percent is indeed a modest one. 

"It is interesting to note that during the decade prior to 
19 70 the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power made three (3) 
rate increases for an over all increase of approximately 39 percent, 
In October, 1969 the East Bay Municipal Utility District raised 
water rates by 24 percent. (The District also has tax subsidies 
of 14. 8C in Alameda, and 15. 5C in Contra Costa.) Since our last 
rate increase in June of 19 70 the Los Angeles Department of Water 



74-195 



and Power has raised rates four times - 6 percent in July, 19 70; 
9 percent in June, 1972; and 4 percent in November, 1973. Also, 
the East Bay Municipal Utility District has put in a two part 
increase of 12-1/2 percent in April, 1973 and an additional 
7 percent in April, 1974. 

"Proposed schedule "W-l" applies to all water users within 
San Francisco, and is a 17.4 percent increase in all rates and 
charges. For example, a family using 700 cu. ft. per month, 
which is representative of many of our smaller customers, would 
pay $6.44 bi-monthly under the new rates, which is an increase 
of 98* over their present bill or 1.6C more per day. 

"The 17.4 percent increase both within and outside the City 
must be approved if the Department is to have anything resembling 
a capital program in the 1974-75 fiscal year. It must also be 
pointed out that this increase will not provide the funds 
necessary to meet the continuing capital program which is required 
to provide adequate service to our customers. Because of the 
delay in obtaining a rate increase, revenues have already fallen 
about 8 million dollars behind schedule, and it will be necessary 
to request another increase no later than 1976. 

"The proposed increase will provide an estimated additional 
$2,036,000 in revenue during the period January, 19 75 through 
June, 1975, and for the full fiscal year of 1975-76 will provide 
an estimated $4,500,000. 

"It is hoped that this Commission, the Mayor, and the Board 
of Supervisors will take favorable action on this proposal so 
billings under the new rates and charges can become effective at 
the earliest practicable date since each day's delay results in 
a loss of revenue of $12,0 00. If approved by the 3oard of 
Supervisors on November 18, 1974 the rates will become effective 
December 18, 1974 and the first bills will be based on meter 
readings made on and after January 17, 1975 for monthly accounts, 
and February 17, 1975 for bi-monthly accounts. 

"I therefore recommend that the resolution be adooted 
approving the revised schedules of rates and charges reflecting 
a 17.4 percent increase in all rate schedules, and a revision of 
charges in Schedule 'J-41 Service Installation to reflect present 
costs. " 

Mr. Frye said that capital improvement allotments have been averaging 
about $4 million annually. Money for the capital improvement program 
was cut about $2.5 million, however, by the Board of Supervisors. 
The Department was able to work with the 3oard so that critical 
programs were not deleted. However, the loss of funds speeds up 
deterioration, while repair and replacement costs are accelerating. 
Serious problems will arise — as pipelines deteriorate, thev are 
subject to breakage and the City becomes liable for the damage. 

Because of the delay in obtaining the rate increase, r tfater Department 
revenues have already fallen about $8 million behind schedule and 
another increase will be necessary no later than 1976. 

Commissioner Berman said it is significant that adoption of the 
increased rate will put to rest the question about canital cost 
involvement of Peninsula water users. Furthermore, it has emphasised 
the existence of the historical 18 percent differential between City 



74-196 



rates and higher suburban rates. 

Commissioner Carey questioned Mr. Frye about the possibility of 
reduction of Water Department operating costs by letting out more 
contracts to private industry vs. maintenance by City employee crews. 

Mr. Frye said past experience has shown that the Department can 
accomplish the work at lower cost. This subject was reviewed 
extensively several months ago by Commissioner Byrne, It is in the 
interest of the City to award most contracts to private contractors, 
with an occasional job delegated to Water Department crews. 

Commissioner Carey also asked if a special rate concession could be 
scheduled for senior citizen property owners. 

Utilities General Counsel William F. Bourne said there would be legal 
difficulties in charging different rates for different types of 
consumers — this would be a discriminatory rate for a special group 
of people. Basically, the City must charge consumers the same fee. 
Mr. Bourne stated that although the matter was reviewed in 1969, the 
City Attorney's Office could examine it again. Commissioner Carey 
asked that this be done. 

Commissioner Flynn then opened the meeting to speakers in the 
audience. 

The only speaker was Miss Virginia Fusco, 34 Cervantes Boulevard, 
representing Marina Civic Improvement and Property Owners Association. 

She urged the Commission to adopt lower rates for City residents, the 
stand she took before the Commission at its August 13, 1974, public 
hearing when the split increase of 14.5 percent for City and 20.5 
percent for suburban consumers was adooted. 

Mr. Bourne then explained the facets of the action filed in U. S. 
District Court by the fifteen suburban water customers, to block the 
split-rate increase. The preliminary injunction order granted by 
Federal Judge Burke did not enjoin the City from a "reasonable rate 
increase, as long as it is non-discriminatory and uniform," he said. 
The City is appealing the court's decision. Mr. Bourne said the 
legal processes will take at least six months. Meanwhile the course 
of action before the Commission for consideration is the Water 
Department's request for a 17.4 percent system-wide increase in 
water rates to obtain as much revenue as possible to help meat its 
obligations. 

On motion of Commissioner Diviny, seconded by Commissioner Berman, 
the Commission unanimously adopted Resolution No. 74-0399, approving 
the revised schedule of rates and charges, reflecting a 17.4 percent 
increase in all rate schedules, and a revision of charges in Schedule 
W-41 Service Installations to reflect present costs.
